Arnold’s ‘Fat Kid’ film makes another festival stop

The indie film “Fat Kid Rules the World,” which co-stars Bainbridge Island’s Dylan Arnold, has taken an unorthodox approach to promoting itself, including screenings on the recent Van’s Warped Tour.
Now, director Matthew Lillard has booked the film — an award-winner at SxSW and one of the fan favorites at the recent Seattle International Film Festival — for a midnight screening at another music festival, the Summer Meltdown at Whitehorse Mountain Amphitheater in Darrington (in the foothills of the North Cascades). The film, about a misfit kid who joins a punk band and finds acceptance, includes an original score by Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready. Arnold, who appeared in a number of productions at Bainbridge Performing Arts and attended Bainbridge High School, will be in attendance for the screening before heading east for his freshman year at the North Carolina School of the Arts.
The festival will have music going on several stages from Aug. 9 to 12, with “Fat Kid Rules the World” closes things out. Performers during the festival include Blitzen Trapper, Vicci Martinez, the Moondoggies, Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground, Kore Ionz and dozens of others. Information about the festival is available at summermeltdown.com.
